Former soviet heavy weight Mikhail Gorbachev has stepped away from perestroika to strut his stuff for Louis Vuitton. He has been photographed in a car sitting next to a Vuitton man bag, driving along Mühlenstraße which famously hosts a cold war icon: the Berlin Wall. Quite a nice picture, I can easily imagine Gorbachev as Russian mafia carrying cash for a hit.
It is interesting that his birth mark is one of his most distinguishing features. Would he be as memorable without the skin blemish, thus chosen for a French luxury fashion label. Each to their own, as Cindy Crawford has her mole.
